Senator ABETZ (Special Minister of State) (2:17 PM) —We are suggesting that it ought to be an amendment to section 237 as opposed to section 237A. That was the matter I sought to raise. The heading of section 237 is `Application of general provisions of act to deeds of arrangement' and section 237A is `Certificate by trustee that provisions of deed have been carried out'. It seems that this is a general provision—not that I should be helping with this amendment, because we oppose it, but if it is going to be foisted upon us—


Senator Murray —You are always helpful.


Senator ABETZ —As always, we are a very helpful and open government and willing to help the opposition, and if we are going to place it in the act it may be better placed in section 237.
